  • Dividends Trading | Online Stockmarket Trading Update
    Dates and Dividends It can get very confusing when it comes to dividend time as there are a wide variety of different dates associated with the dividend payment There is the cum dividend date the ex dividend date the record date and the payment date All are relevant in their own right Cum Dividend This means the share is trading with the dividend attached and the buyers receive the benefit of the dividend Ex Dividend If the share is purchased on the ex dividend date the buyer does not receive the dividend The share must be purchased before the ex dividend date to gain access to the dividend Record Date This is the day that the investors must be recorded as shareholders Because the purchase of a share is not settled until T 3 3 days after the share is traded the record date is 3 days after the ex dividend date Payment Date This is the day the cheques are posted to the shareholders This could be significantly later than the record date It is not necessary to own the share on the payment date but it is necessary to own it on the record date The most important date for most people is the ex dividend date as you must buy the share prior to this date to receive the dividend On the ex dividend date the share drops in value usually by the amount of the dividend Dividend Reinvestment Plan DRP If you do not need the cash that is provided by your dividends then it is a good idea to consider reinvesting your dividends Many companies offer the opportunity for shareholders to reinvest their dividends as shares rather than receive the dividend in cash Some companies even offer a discount to the current price if you choose to reinvest your dividends Discounts can be up to 7 5 of the price of the share which is a significant discount though most DRPs tend to be at a smaller 2 5 discount or no discount at all This allows an investor to not only benefit from the power of compounding in the price of the share it also allows an investor to benefit from compounding the number of shares as well If you receive all the dividends in cash the number of shares you own does not change but as the dividend increases over time the amount of cash you receive also increases Under the DRP strategy the number of shares you have will increase each year and because you have more shares and the dividends are also increasing this growth compounds Over time this can be significant Dividends for Traders At one of the seminars I ran one of the participants got really excited about the idea of trading for dividends If a company is paying a dividend yield of 6 per cent they will usually make two payments of approximately 3 per cent per dividend That is not a huge return on the face of

NCM Newcrest Mining Posted in ASX Company News No Comments It s Dividend Time Again Friday March 2nd 2012 It is that time of year again when many Australian companies pay dividends Australian companies prepare financial reports twice a year and profitable companies usually pay dividends twice a year These dividends are announced when the company reports The Australian dividend seasons are March April and July August With interest rates at very low levels dividends become more attractive to investors Why settle for a 5 return on your cash when you could get more than that in dividends tax free Let s imagine you have 10 000 cash to invest and your choice is between term deposits and dividends You could take the 10 000 down to your local Commonwealth Bank CBA branch and place it in a term deposit Current deposit rates are around 5 0 depending on how long you re prepared to tie your money up for After 12 months you will receive interest of 500 Unfortunately it doesn t end there because the tax department treats this as income and taxes you at your personal rate Assuming a 30 tax rate you will pay 150 and get to keep 350 from your investment Alternatively you could buy shares in CBA for 49 At this price CBA pays a dividend of 6 6 At a lower price the yield is higher still After 12 months you will receive a return of 660 in two payments during the year But when it comes to tax time it gets even better The income is taxable as before but you get a credit for the tax the company has already paid It will depend on if your tax rate is higher than the company rate of 30 or lower as to the impact of tax on your total return Assuming your tax rate is 30 then you get 660 after tax If your tax rate is lower as it is in self managed super funds then your return could be even higher So investing for dividends from the share results in you receiving almost double the return after tax 660 compared to 350 when you put your money in the bank You are now exposed to movement in the share price which could be good or bad but remember your return on investment is determined by when you buy the share which sets your dividend yield so day to day fluctuations of the share price are not as important You ve missed the opportunity to pick up the CBA dividend this time around it closed last week but there are plenty of other companies still to pay dividends this season You can further enhance your returns using a dividend reinvestment plan allowing you to buy more shares at a discounted rate Not all companies offer this facility but if the company does

    trading style that you use Just remember you need to know when you are getting out of a position your initial exit point or stop to determine your risk Letting Profits Run Using trailing stops and knowing your Reward Risk ratio for the trade can enhance your confidence in the trade improve your ability to trade and give you the confidence to adjust your position size according to your profitability Risk or R In Dollar Terms We ve provided an example of calculating risk according to the share price but you may like to think about it in a slightly different way through dollar terms If your minimum unit of investment is 10 000 and you decide that you will sell if the value of your investment dropped to 9000 then your initial risk is 1000 and 1R is 1000 R is simply the initial risk per share of stock or per minimum investment unit Trade Example Using Risk or R A trade in CSL demonstrates how to you can use Risk to measure and manage a trade In mid February CSL broke to a new trading range above 32 90 For this trade setup we entered the trade at 32 90 with initial stop at 29 90 The initial risk 1R was 3 00 1R 32 90 29 90 If you were trading on a weekly system the trade would be still active with a 4 1R open profit i e 45 20 32 90 3 00 where 1R 3 00 So if you initially risked 1 000 you would be in profit to the tune of 4 100 at this time Managing Risk or R Investors and traders tend to be overly optimistic about the trades that they make particularly in the early days They often don t understand their worst case risk or even think about such factors as slippage gapping and the like Using initial risk or R to measure your trading performance can help build your confidence and improve your trading In subsequent articles we will use IRESS Trader to demonstrate how to determine position sizing and discuss measuring portfolio performance using R multiples Investment returns over a long period are not so much dependent on the amount of money you have to invest but rather they are more a function of managing your trade risk and letting compounding work its magic by starting to invest as early as possible refer to the article on The Power of Compounding For more trade ideas and recommendations sign up for a free trial of the D2MX Daily Trading Report which provides a daily serving of insightful market analysis from the D2MX Advisory team including Trade ideas and strategies Market scans to watch International market analysis and Highlights from the S P ASX 200 To request an obligation free trial call 1300 610 024 or email advisory d2mx com au Also in This Series Part 1 Simple Trend Finder Scanning Method Part 2 Going For Gold Part 3

    the Spanish and Italian debt issues near term In Asia key markets are holding at or above their 50 day moving averages with the Hong Kong market outperforming The Chinese market has bounced strongly in recent weeks as traders anticipate that the Chinese government will lean towards monetary easing in the near term The main news of the week revolved around Chinese economic growth GDP which slowed to 8 1 in the first quarter from the year earlier period below the 8 4 expected Also traders are taking time to digest the ramifications of the announcement by the People s Bank of China to double the yuan s trading range against the dollar on a given day from 0 5 to 1 pushing currencies such as the yen and the dollar higher and hurting commodity prices In Australia the market continues to drift higher A number of major resource companies have reported quarterly production figures which have been impacted by weather conditions but companies are generally holding to their full year production forecasts which should be a positive for the overall market and could be just the ticket for our market to push through the key resistance levels that have kept our markets in check since the melt down back in August last year Commodity prices have been trading sideways this week as the US dollar has eased Crude oil prices are hovering around the US102 support level and copper has again been unable to trade above US4 00 and is holding below its 200 moving average support around US3 60 while gold prices have again found support around US1 640 The Aussie market has again bounced off its 200 day moving average and is testing its 9 month resistance level around 4380 level again On the S P ASX 200 the 4250 level remains the crucial support level and 4400 is the key level on the upside Stocks have effectively been drifting higher as we move into the bank reporting and dividend season but we need the materials sector to participate for the market to reach new highs A number of the S P ASX sectors are performing strongly above their 150 day moving averages having broken through key levels in early March These include the defensive sectors of Healthcare and Property Trusts while Telecoms and Utilities have eased The Financials Consumer Discretionary Consumer Staples Industrials and Energy sectors continue to bounce higher off their 150 day moving averages while the Materials sector looks to be finding support at current levels but it continues to underperform Traders should be looking to protect their profits in this market and reduce their risk by using options and warrants strategies The D2MX Financial Advisory Services team can help with these trades Call me on 1300 610 024 for further information Investors should also be looking to utilise options and warrant strategies to protect their positions and profits Options are a relatively cheap form of insurance as volatility remains low and you can also leverage yourself for breakout trades as they occur Remain attuned to the news from overseas particularly from the eurozone and China in relation to easing policies and the US as their markets back off their multi year highs Monitor the performance of China and the US dollar for a guide to the future direction of commodities and equities prices The S P ASX 200 index is currently trading at 4359 and is holding above the key 200 day moving average Key levels for the index next week will be 4250 and 4420 with 4300 the key short term pivot level By Michael Hevern DMX Retail Trading Desk For Buy and Sell recommendations

Wrap Traders Cheer the Greek Debt Swap Deal Friday March 9th 2012 Investors had plenty of news to digest this week but the major market mover has been the Greek debt swap deal which was at risk of being derailed by the private sector bond holders Traders pushed markets down for their biggest single day losses since last November with the Dow Jones recording its first triple digit loss for the year The selling was sparked by renewed concerns that the private sector was reluctant to participate in the Greek debt swap which was crucial for Greece to gain access to its second bailout funding US markets have backed off key levels this week with a sharp dip coming after Greece had debt swap issues but the markets have since recovered to record their best two day rally for the year Commodity prices were sold down sharply earlier in the week as traders took their profits off the table but they appear to be finding support again in recent days There will be some telling data released
